What are the three stages of chickenpox?
The three stages of chickenpox are:
- Stage 1 – appearance of small spots anywhere in the body
- Stage 2 – the spots fill with fluid and become blisters
- Stage 3 – the blisters become scabs
How long does chickenpox last?
Chickenpox usually lasts about four to seven days.
Do you have to isolate with chickenpox?
You have to isolate chickenpox because it’s infectious. Stay off work and stay home until you are sure that you are no longer contagious. Stay away from pregnant women and newborn babies.
When is chickenpox most contagious?
Chickenpox is most contagious during the first two to five days of being sick, which is one to two days before rashes start showing. This means you could be spreading chickenpox before you even know you have it.
Can you get chickenpox twice?
You can get chickenpox twice but it’s very rare. Most people who had it once are immune to it forever. Sometimes, the virus reactivates in other people and causes shingles.

I would like to thank a receptionist for being beyond kind and helpful. I came this Saturday morning, and she was the only one at the desk. Thank you so much for being a beautiful positive person. All the staff was also excellent.

My visits have been fantastic both times I’ve gone. The woman at the front desk was courteous and professional, and prompt. The nurse was excellent. Same treatment as the front desk and the smoothest phlebotomist going. The doctor was great, calm, thorough, polite, and knowledgeable. I wish he were my GP. Overall? 11 out of 10.

I’ve been to Nao Medical, I think, three times, and their staff is delightful. If you are in dire pain, they take you in as soon as possible, if not sooner. The offices and exam rooms are spotless. All of the medical staff is very knowledgeable, patient, and understanding. I highly recommend it.

My daughter came in with stomach pain, and your doctor was able to diagnose that she probably had appendicitis. I took her to the emergency room, and she did have to have her appendix removed. Thank you so much for your help.

The staff and the doctors were all very kind and caring. I was very worried about my child’s health. I appreciate your clinic being open on Saturdays. This saved us a trip to the ER, which can be scary for a child. Thank you again!
